Here are some highlights!
I was able to see the movie Smurfs with my dad. It was great to have an evening hanging out with my dad. Much like most children from the 80's I LOVED the smurfs. I still have my Smurf baby blanket and Smurfette pillow tucked away in my hope chest in our bedroom (for what reason.... I don't know). The movie was a lot better than I hoped it to be. I was concerned because of the bad reviews BUT it was comical and made me giggle. There was some bonus adult humor as well. Overall... it was Smurferistic!

Saturday I ventured out with Connor to do some shopping while Kevin tried out mountain biking in the morning. I had to get some supplies for my Vision Board Girls Night on Tuesday.
From there we ventured to Marshall's to see what kind of deals I could find on some toys. I found Wacky Wednesday and Ten Apples Up On Top by Theo. LeSieg (aka Dr. Seuss). I already have a copy of Wacky Wednesday BUT it has been passed through a few children and has lived a long life. Needless to say it needs to be replaced. I was excited to find it because I thought Wacky Wednesday was no longer in print.... AND I got it for $4.50. Ten Apples Up On Top was a favorite book that was at my grandparents house and I was excited to find it for $4!! I also scored Connor the Little Tikes Golf Set for $12. He LOVES it!!
Our last stop was at M&M's Consignment Shop. I had taken a few things in a couple weeks ago when I was cleaning out my office and wanted to see if anything sold. I was planning on looking for some Little People things for Connor if they did. I was happy to find there was $27 on my account. I got Connor two Little People toys, a Sit N Spin and at the last minute he grabbed a huge Tonka Fire Truck.
I just looked up the Little People toys and realized what a great deal we got. First I got him the Little People Racetrack that is supposed to come with two racers and costs $36.... I got ours for $11 and it came with the two race cars AND two extras cars/wheelies. NICE. I can't find the exact Little People Town that I picked up (its a little older but still has a lot of life left) but the one that is similar is going for close to $40 and we got ours for $12. Consignment shopping is WONDERFUL.

Sunday was grocery shopping and cleaning day. Fun, Fun, Fun.... Well really it kinda was. I love rearranging and organizing when I have the time and drive. That was exactly what I did in the kitchen yesterday. I attacked our two clutter piles and moved around some furniture and it looks GREAT! I'm prepping to start following The Fly Lady once again. We're getting a new dishwasher this week and I'm ready to have my sink empty at the end of every evening!
Overall it was a productive weekend. Lots of boring stuff for your reading pleasure. This week I have my Vision Board Girls Night and a few other ideas to blog about. Stay tuned!!
